The redefinition of abundance and success that we see in the world of social entrepreneurship may seem new, but it is not. There are many other cultures who have lived out an economy of gratitude and reciprocity. We can learn from them, from their mistakes, from their successes, and from their honest accounts of what it takes to live with a greater awareness of interdependence.
